Leo Laporte Complains About Costs for Shows While Bragging About Buying Scalped Broadway Tickets

Fuck you. How do ya like that?
Fuck you. How do ya like that?

#Soup says he can’t afford Windows Weekly coverage from Moscone due to union workers, but he can afford last minute plane tickets and scalped show tickets to see Hamilton in New York.

These two things are said mere minutes apart. Watch his clock.

Mary Jo Foley is unimpressed.

      Who’s business is it of yours?One is the company money the other is his personal money.

      “Whose” you meant, not “Who is.”

      TWiT, LLC is owned solely by Leo Laporte. It does not file its own tax return. All profits of the business are his, so your argument makes very little sense.

      Additionally, eat a dick.

      50:20 – Leo: (talking about Microsoft’s Channel 9 limitation of one camera) “It’s a union shop, so we might have to hire thousands of dollars worth of union people to stand there while we do our job. And if that’s the case, I am going to put you on Skype and I gonna stay here.”

      54:00 – Leo: (talking about getting the “Hamilton” tickets) “If you’re willing to pay enough money, you can get anything in this country, this great country of ours, this great capitalistic system. I’m really excccccccccited.”

      Previously, Leo mentions “Hamilton” here..

      22:45 – Leo talks/drones on about going to New York to see a Broadway show. (This might have been where Leo mentions going to see the show so that Michael will get interested in history but I didn’t save any quotes from this section so not sure)

      42:50 – Leo: (speaking about going to see the musical “Hamilton” in New York) “I’m excited. I’m so excited.. I spent a ridiculous amount of money to get the tickets. I bought them on Stubhub. I feel bad about that. I want to see it with the original cast. Then I’m going to listen to the soundtrack obsessively of course.”

      Leo also mentions “Hamilton” a couple of more times after Windows Weekly..

      59:30 – In a discussion about David Agus, doctor to the stars) Leo: “He wrote a book called ‘The End of Illness”, which I own.” Jeff Jarvis: “David, who also advised me personally on my prostate situation.. I see him at Davos.”

      57:40 – Leo: (talking about Sarah Lane taking all the Natureboxes when she left/quit) “Sarah must have been stocking up because she knew she was going.. she took all of them.”

      58:26 – Leo (talking about taking ads like Audible, Harry’s, Naturebox, etc), “We don’t get credit. We invented a lot of this stuff. We were one of the first ones podcasts (Editorial comment: Mmmm.. shouldn’t that be NETCAST??) to do ads.. Audible is everywhere.. but they started right here. We separated the agency part, the ad sales out from TWiT. TWiT is just a content company. Lisa’s running an agency.. she’s going to other podcasts saying ‘the formula we invented here.. we don’t do it like anyone else does..”

      31:40 – Ryan Shrout: “Man, all this college basketball going on and here I am working and stuff.”

      32:05 – Apparently Patrick Norton didn’t show up on time for TWiTCH so producer Berk tells Ryan “still calling”. Ryan: “One day I am gonna set up an auto reminder on my phone that sends a text message to Patrick fifteen minutes before.. every time”. Then Ryan texts Patrick. A few minutes later.. Ryan: “No response.” Berk later says “no answer from him.. phone or SMS”.

      4:45 – Patrick: “I was trying to figure out where all my space had gone in Google Drive. And I finally realized I had at least two, maybe three terabytes of iPhone photos I didn’t know about.” Ryan: “Nice.” (Editorial comment: If you ever listen to Ryan, more often than not, his response to someone else’s comments is “nice”, which he says in somewhat of a snarky, half-ass way which I translate into meaning “I don’t care/that was a boring comment not worthy of any kind of intelligent response”)

      27:14 – *Editorial comment: WTF is Padre doing here?? He is gagging/breathing into the mic for 15 seconds) Padre eventually says.. “Oh we are live? I’m sorry. I was doing my breathing exercises.. very popular in the tantric circles.”

      28:50 – Padre: “There’s someone for everyone. Actually, that’s totally a lie.. some people will die alone.” (then Padre creepily laughs)

      44:28 – Padre: “Anytime I see someone in SF walking around wearing BEATS headphones, I just wanna walk up and say ‘oh, I didn’t know I was better than you.'” (Editorial comments: Do these last two Padre quotes really demonstrate the Christian love and mentality a Priest should have? I know he is going for laughs but neither comment was funny (really only one person out of the five others who were on TWiET laughed at his BEATS headphone “joke”) and were basically mean spirited in nature.

      1. Robert Ballecer is such an infantile, nasty, worthless,piece of shit.

        He seems to spend his whole life playing with toys of one sort or another, he acts like a teenage asshole, he has an inflated opinion of his own intelligence and knowledge. If he were just a normal member of the public I would avoid him anyway but the fact the egotistical slug wears a dog collar makes him about as likeable as a member of NAMBLA(I have no idea whether he actually is a member – even they have standards).

  1. The “financially conservative” Leo Laporke also mentioned he’d be flying JetBlue Mint and staying at the Sofitel New York. Stop trying to pretend you can live the life of a millionaire, you are a sad pathetic worthless piece of shit and your company needs a real CFO you idiot.

    1. He’ sonly doing what everyone else does – lives rich off the profits, bails when it falls over in flames. Leo’s just picking the carcass clean, pay no mind. As long as he gets to brag about his trips and his cameras and his sex life, all is well.

      And it will be someone else’s problem when the smoking ruins need to be swept up after his empire collapses, and the Sheriff comes to grab what equipment is left, to give to people Leo owes money too. He’ll be off on another cruise with is ArtisANAL wife, plotting with her to fuck up another client who’s dumb enough to hire her.

      The funny thing is when he does retire TwiT – a narcissist just doesn’t stop needing attention. Bet he tries to tap into TED or other venues for those sweet, sweet speaking fees.

      “How to burn down your empire in 10 easy steps (while never sacrificing your lavish lifestyle)”, by Leo LaPorte. It’s sure to be a winner!

      Hey, someone has to pay for his cruises and Broadway trips.

  2. Having been a TWiT listener for many years Leo was starting to get to on my nerves. The things that came out this man’s mouth were startling and shameful in-spite of his proclamations of being “family friendly”. Just for kicks I googled “Leo Sucks” and to my surprise I’m far from the only one who feels this way. Leo was worse than I suspected – a total asshole and sex addict who broadcasts dick/vagina pics and lurid web chats. In-fact, it seems Leo Laporte has completely lost his mind and he and his company are a rapidly sinking ship soon to be no more.

  3. Leo exists to piss people off these days and after all these years of doing it, he is still there. The lesson is that bad people do well in life. Even if he strokes out tomorrow, he had a good run of it.

      So true, TD at this point is documentation of if you want to get ahead in life, be a talentless egotistical fat arrogant gluttonous sexist racist narcissistic hypocritical liar. The Donald Trump of Tech.

        The Donald Trump of Tech ?

        You really fell off the deep end in your hate of Trump.
        Donald Trump has more integrity in his combover than Leo does in his entire body.
        This was a terrible metaphor.

        1. Oh really? And just how many of his own companies has Leo bankrupted, leaving untold numbers of creditors screwed?

          Compared to a fucking scumbag like Trump, Leo has hardly caused any damage at all.

      Guys you’re missing the point. He’s doing this out of the goodness of his heart to get his stepson started as an avid Broadway enthusiast!

      Actually, I think he said that he wants to take his stepson to Hamilton to get him interested in history. Now that is pathetic. Boy… This trip had to be costing thousands.

        Are we supposed to believe he was looking for a way to get his stepson interested in history and that is how this trip was fertilized?

        It is more likely that he was running his mouth to his zombie followers about his trip and this thought popped in his head so he fed it to his drones and they were happy.

        This fits his profile of blatant disregard for the truth and constant violation of the public trust.

          There’s no history to be learned there. It’s dumbed down and full of hip-hop music.

            Actually I take back what I said. He was probably saying why he was taking his stepson to the event not why he was organizing the trip.

        2. He feels the need to go to NYC and pay at least a couple thousand in tickets to see Hamilton (which I would also love to see, but I live in CA, and unlike Leo, I can’t just up and go) because it is popular. It totally fits into his extreme narcissism. He has to see this so he can be “cool” and lord it over everyone. You can bet he won’t miss a moment to talk about this to Andy and others who can’t really afford to drop serious funds on something like this. It’s all about him and his narcissism.

      2. Actually he’s going to do a review of the infrared headset technology for the hearing impared that they use in Broadway theatres. That way the whole trip can be a tax write off.

  4. Hey has anyone else noticed someone on his Twitter is calling out fat fuck Leo about his nature box ads lately???
    they have a point
    2 months ago every time fatfuck uncle Leo did a nature boxx he would rip open those packages and wolf down the snacks like he was a starving pigmy
    fast forward : I seen fat fuck on ttg give his 5-10 min long winded nature box ad
    without opening or eating any of the sponsors product yet he was moaning and creating sound effects as if he was convincing a radio listener he in fact
    has opened a pack of that shit and jamming it down his throat
    WTF???
    sounds like fat fuck Leo is pulling a con game toward the radio listeners and the NatureBox exc’s
    forgot the best part: the Twitter poster asked FatFuck if his failing health was caused by
    all the NatureBox products he ate the past 5 years and that’s the reason he’s not eating NatureBox anymore

    LMFAO!!!!!!

    So I’m thinking we should all message the Nature box folks and say if Leo won’t eat your products he pushing then why should i(we) buy the product !!

  5. Lay-o LA Fuck continues to swirl around the bowl and down the drain.

    Fuck you Lay-o, how do you like that?

  6. The only reason that the show’s so popular is it’s full of hip-hop music that the darker and wanna-be-darker kids like. I’m certain dark-lover and bleached blond Sarah Lane has seen it at least three times!

  7. Look at all the hoops that Andrew (Paul’s partner in What the Tech) has jumped through to ensure a quality broadcast at various live events.

    I think this should be the nail in the coffin for Windows Weekly. I don’t have any love for Andrew, but he gets shit done. Paui and Mary-Jo should start a new Windows show with Andrew…

    Leo doesn’t give two shits about the quality of the show anymore.
